The Focal Shape 65 is the reference-level speaker in the Shape line. It's dedicated to nearfield monitoring and reaches full potential from 3 ft away. Shape 65 is recommended for room sizes of 180 square feet.

The Shape 65 is the reference of the Shape line. Although it's dedicated to nearfield monitoring, this monitor enables extraordinary monitoring quality, in the lowest to the highest frequencies.

Simply a must, this monitor will express its full potential from a listening distance of three feet away (1 meter).

Each Shape 65 monitor speaker is made in France and use five innovations to maximize acoustic transparency. These were designed to meet the needs of near-field monitoring. Shape monitors combine an ingenuous design and numerous settings optimized for the acoustics of small listening rooms.

The innovations provide remarkable acoustic transparency. These new work tools distinguish themselves through the wide and extremely precise stereo image.

The bass register is articulated and controlled. The lower mid-range and mid-range benefit from extreme neutrality, and without any masking effects, making equalization of these essential registers much easier.

The new tweeter is what's at the source of the very high definition. It efficiently reveals any hissing, and it's also very precise in the very high end.

Flax Sandwich Cone

Recent technology has proven to be a considerable improvement, in terms of weight, rigidity and damping.

TMD Surround

This technology provides a linear frequency response curve between 1 and 2kHz, while significantly reducing distortion in the same range. The mid-range register benefits from remarkable neutrality, and it contributes to the great precision of the overall stereo image.
